About the property

Galatea a three bedroom lighthouse keepers cottage with sea views.

In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Galatea at Whitby Lighthouse.

Galatea is one of two holiday cottages available at the lighthouse, which lies on the East Coast just outside Whitby and close to the North Yorkshire Moors.

The High Cliffs of the North Yorkshire coast hide a number of small ports, the most significant of which is Whitby. Captain James Cook was apprenticed to a Whitby shipowner and made the first of his voyages of discovery (1768-1771) in a covered Whitby built 'cat' - a small ship rigged collier renamed 'Endeavour'. Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff and spreading below, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets running down to the busy quayside and harbour entrance. To the south lie the coastal villages and resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Inland lie the heather moorlands of the North Yorkshire Moors and, further afield, York.

Galatea

  • 4 of 5

The property was fabulous. The view was spectacular, the cottage was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We loved it and wished we had stayed another night. The welcome hamper was a wonderful surprise and very appreciated. Thank you.

However, getting in touch with the housekeeper was a problem. We were lucky there was a lady in the other cottage and was able to get the code for us.
